You'e so wrong about so many things.
I've just been watching Finn and he's high 130s to mid 140s.
I'm also not English. Thank goodness.

There are a fair few things wrong about Finn at the moment but pace is not one of them.
OK, so Indian tests have finished, we were ****ing awful and a heap of players shouldnt be selected for Australia in the foreseeable future
I know the usual suspects will say the potential replacements are no better - BULL****
Even if we ignore somebody like Chris Rogers (who is, was and forever will be a better player than someone like Cowan even at the age of 35) just how ****ing good do you need to be to average 25 or whatever it is that Watson has average for the last 3 years?
The bottom line is that there are a truckload of players in domestic cricket that could do the same, we wouldnt have to pay them a base salary of $1.5 million per year to do it and if we continue to accept mediocrity (and that is being ****ing generous to Watson's batting) then the team will never improve
Lead-up to '05 was both team playing extremely well winning series against lots of teams, lead-up to this one...hmmm...

England had 51ao mere months before 09. Dangerous to predict too far ahead ever in Tests, especially nowadays when form seems to come and go so rapidly.
England's insipid performance in NZ is awful but the one consolation is that it will dampen expectations somewhat. If we'd won 3-0 (and aus losing 4-0) press and fans alike would have been predicting 5-0 wins which would have been completely unreasonable given Australia are considerably more suited and prepared for a tour to england than india.
Hopefully the press build it up as two average teams coming face to face. Could be like the 2009 ashes. Two average teams come together with not much between them and some pretty poor cricket played.
What's scary is that I can see the selectors starting the first Ashes test with the same 11 that just folded I the 4th India test. Obviously Clarke comes back for Maxwell but Watson and Wade are probably locks for spots. I can see MJ playing if Starc and Bird are not fit. Gonna hope they take Hilf and Harris and drop him though.
Wade needs to be dropped fast. Pick Haddin if none of the other younger guys are better than Wade. Which seems inconceivable.
We really need to do something with Watson. No runs as a pure batsman should mean dropped.
Bird's fc record is distorted because he is a bowler that plays at bowler-friendly Bellerive
Butterworth's fc record is distorted because he is a bowler that plays at bowler-friendly Bellerive
Cosgrove has scored 9000 runs @ 40+ including 800 this year
His home ground - bowler-friendly Bellerive
